It is warm outside,
49 degrees and sunny.
It is bejeweled with shimmering glass ornaments.
I said my Yuletide blessing.
Many homemade tokens decorate the tombstones.
The geese find plenty of fresh water in the puddles.
I am thinking about how once the coming of longer days was celebrated.
In the olde ways people celebrated Winter Solstice also known as Yule.
For the next week I will be walking in Portland, Oregon.
I will be walking with my daughter.
We will celebrate the Yuletide.
